Continuous measurement of dissolved hydrogen for corrosion monitoring in water steam cycles.
Hydrogen monitoring plays an important role in corrosion monitoring for water steam cycles. Corrosion occurs when water comes into contact with iron at high temperature. According to the Schikorr reaction, hydrogen is released as a by-product during the formation of the magnetite and hematite layer in the power plant. Therefore its concentration is a direct measure of the rate of corrosion.
